He may not have been traditionally psychedelic, but Prince embraced it all. He was funky, weird, beautiful, sexy and most of all an original genius. I mean he did name his estate Paisley Park. Prince videos don’t stay up for long on the world of youtube, but this gem will be here for a while. I’ve watched this video many many times over the past few years and am always blown away by his TOTAL COMMAND of the stage. Prince comes in at about the halfway point.

There was a period of time in my life where 80% of the music I listened to was Prince and the Butthole Surfers. I danced for a good hour this morning with unrestrained tears and booty shaking. The world has lost a unique treasure. Rest in Peace your Purpleness.

One of the most psychedelic and ingenious videos in the history of the internet (Even though it was created before the web,  for video tapes). Ivan Stang, founder of the Church of the SubGenius directed this wildly ingenious video clip.

It is interesting to note, that many of the effects of the video tape, according to the speaker are similar if not identical to those of psychedelic substances. However, the tone itself is much more commanding and sinister than that usually associated with psychedelics.

The video looks like some kind of parody on mind control and hallucinations, but what I find to be the most hilarious is the name “Church of the SubGenius”, created intentionally in order to become semantically ossified and for people to start using it and say that they are “part of Church of the SubGenius”  without thinking about what the actual meaning is of the name is…

And here is another one…
